    I worked at Monarch Beverage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay and benefits, great teamwork, and the company offered many perk programs. The health insurance program was second to none. The hiring process made sure you generally had exceptional coworkers as well.

    Cons

    Long hours, physically demanding. But those aren't always bad. Outside of the long hours, the only complaint I would have was that we were always very busy around holidays, but that's the nature of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the people actually on the route, and working with the products. Generally you're good at this, but there was room for improvement.

    Poor leadership and training of new hires. Does not like change. Poor retention.

    I have been working at Monarch Beverage (More than a year)

    Pros

    Monarch Beverage is great place to start your career. Their interview process is tough enough to weed out bad employees but also relatively easy enough to obtain a position without multiple years of experience. Also, they do a great job training and preparing employees to advance to higher positions. They do such a great job that they have even named their training program "Monarch University".

    Cons

    My only con is there is occasionally a bad apple in the batch. It seems like there are few people that I question how they even landed a position with Monarch in the first place. Fortunately, if their work suffers and upper management realizes they are a poor employee then they tend to be weeded out. I'm guessing this happens with most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Younger employees (like myself) look up to higher level managers for inspiration and guidance. It means a lot to us when you give us thanks for our hard work. Don't forget to tell your employees how much you appreciate them.
